About Cloudbreak

The Cloudbreak immunotherapy platform is a fundamentally new approach
for the treatment of infectious disease that, in a single molecule,
pairs potent antimicrobials with agents that redirect the immune system
to destroy fungal, bacterial and viral pathogens. Cidara is initially
developing Cloudbreak candidates for the treatment and prevention of
serious multi-drug resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacterial infections
and viral infections. Different from traditional antibiotics or
antivirals, the Cloudbreak ADCs physically link the pathogen and the
immune component to eradicate or prevent pathogens via dual killing

About Cidara Therapeutics

Cidara is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing
new anti-infectives that have the potential to transform the standard of
care and save or improve patients’ lives. The company is currently
advancing its novel echinocandin antifungal, rezafungin acetate, in a
Phase 3 clinical trial in the treatment of candidemia and invasive
candidiasis and plans to initiate a second Phase 3 trial in the
prophylaxis of invasive fungal infections. Rezafungin has improved
pharmacokinetics compared to existing echinocandins and the potential
for expanded utility across patient settings. It is the only once-weekly
product candidate in development for the treatment and prevention of
life-threatening invasive fungal infections. Cidara also is leveraging
its novel Cloudbreak™ platform to develop antibody-drug conjugates for
the treatment of serious viral and Gram-negative bacterial infections.
Cloudbreak is the first immunotherapy discovery platform designed
specifically to create compounds that directly kill pathogens and also
direct a patient’s immune cells to attack and eliminate bacterial,
fungal or viral pathogens. Cidara is headquartered in San Diego,
California. For more information, please visit
